Instagram sold to Facebook


But what does it truly imply for customers as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official announcement last night on his Facebook account, countless remarks appeared. Not just in Twitter yet In Instagram also. For everyday Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has actually successfully transformeded into our primary communication device. A place where we can share greater than simply images, however our feelings, ideological background and our point of views as well.

Yesterday, our @Igers pic pointing out the "Facebook bargain" made it to the Popular Web page, no surprises there ...

As creator of Instagramers, the main fan network of the Instagram App all over the world, obviously that my phone was warm with task last evening. References, inquiries, doubts ... I am probably one of the very first Iger obtaining complaints every day, as it needs to be!

Lots of people are asking me today what will certainly happen following so I determined to compose this blog post.

The curious feature of this whole story and also our Instagram users experience is that we seem to act differently depending on the socials media we utilize.

-- Most of us are deeply included with the Instagram App itself as well as proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's growing community. An actual sensation of belonging to it via the neighborhood. That's why we also caught on to just what totals up to a special anxiety of Android' s incursion into the Instagram world, we fear that it can damage our ideal little world

-- The majority of us have truly no suggestion of who owns our images legal rights and also which third party could use it (like in Facebook )

-- Everybody have Facebook account.

-- A massive part of our Instagram Pics are everyday and normally shared to our very own Facebook walls and also accounts.

-- According to a current study, as much as 12.5% of the pictures posted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of more than 270 neighborhood teams around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles as well as we have a personal group of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing events, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing concepts, offering tips ...

So why are we so scared of Facebook?

As Net customers we won our independence and freedom in our choices. We do not intend to count on institutions or companies any longer. Instagram until today was like a little "family" composed by a couple of young individuals that created an incredible application and changed our lives ... They made use of to address directly through the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog site and also there was a genuine harmony in between users and proprietors of the application and so naturally, we are left wondering exactly what will certainly take place currently.

In a picture I posted yesterday in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see here in the ideal side) I obtained greater than 220 negative comments about the procurement. There is no doubt that some individuals are really upset may assume their legal rights will certainly not be appreciated which it will most likely scent company as well as advertising and marketing all over.

However we need to be aware that our favorite application could only survive if there is a viable business version behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook already has a billion individuals and that they are definitely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to enhance their participant ranks. Not. The majority of us are currently Facebookers and also Mark already has all our personal information. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has actually not shown any interested in merging both Brands and Services (at the very least for the moment). He knows we do not act the same way in each social media sites platform we come from which we act in different ways depending on our inspirations. Merging the two systems under the Facebook umbrella would certainly provoke a substantial movement to various other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do believe this offer is much more a question of method and keeping Google and also other rivals at bay (Google had actually lately shown interest for IG). I directly believed that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made even more feeling to me yet it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually delighted with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was one of the preliminary resources fund financier.

I think that (for the very least a few months, maybe a year ...) there will certainly be no important changes in our Instagram App which regardless, it is useless to aim to intend further compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders registered last week and also absolutely nothing truly took place. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this time around?
